In what way do you want to change the footnotes in Word? Which version of
Word are you using?

I am using this post because I wanted to get back to you to say that the problem I last wrote about is clear now. Don't worry about macros or anything else. It is a simple normal.docm problem.
I now have a supposedly blank document with writing on - "the quick brown fox" hereafter known as "the fox" for identification purposes. (before I just got an open window with no doc so now I can actually see what is happening) . It is now opening as a blank document and I cannot rename it because I get the message it is open even though I have closed all documents. So basically this is what was happening when I was opening and closing documents and getting messages and then not being able to change anything because a doc was open.
I cleared out all my macros that had been in global template and redid my macro and it is the only one in there.
So when I try and get a new document it comes up. My normal.docm are now found in "new from existing templates". If I try and do a search from start I go straight to the fox doc. It doesn't do a search.
I try and make a new one by going to file and open but it still brings up the fox doc.
So I need to rename it but just cant seem to be able to . Oh and I have ticked hidden files so I can see everything. Could it be a hidden file?
I hope this makes everything clearer. I am looking at a document on how to fix it but lots of different versions in the one article. The article warns about
making a new normal doc for existing files.
My macro was for all files because I don't do any other work with footnotes.
Thank you in advance for helping with this document.
As for one of the other questions re italics.
I still cannot understand why italics changed. What question should I ask to see if I can get an article or an explanation and fix please?
Want to make sure you get my reply so posted to a couple of yor posts.
Re normal docm problem. Sorry for the delay in getting back to you. I have been unwell. I have resolved my normal.docm problem that has arisen in this thread. I am still unsure as to why I am loosing my italics but will keep an eye on it and if it happens again I can provide more information.
Thank you for your assistance
